Crazy Hot Chicken

| Canyon Country Magazine | February 14, 2020

As the New Year got its start, so did a new Canyon Country restaurant. Crazy Hot Chicken opened January 6 with an original menu and all new taste combinations. Located next to Chi Chi’s and Manoushee Mediterranean Restaurant on Sierra Highway, it’s an exotic version of a traditional, fast casual chicken restaurant.

“We serve sandwiches and wings—five or six different flavors and five or six dips for them to choose from,” said Julie Ung, who owns Crazy Hot Chicken with her son, Michael. “Most sauce is made in-house and most of it is non-spicy unless the customer asks for more spice, (then) we add flavor.”

The restaurant staff does not pre-cook the chicken, which is why it isn’t fast food in the traditional sense. “Everything we cook, we cook fresh,” she said. “We fry chicken fresh, and that takes at least 7 or 8 minutes. It’s tender, nice and juicy.”
They also set themselves apart by using Hawaiian rolls for buns. Customers like the blend of the bread’s flavor with the creamy Sriracha Sauce.

“Most people like chicken,” Julie Ung said. “Some people don’t eat pork, some don’t eat beef, but most people eat chicken. It’s like comfort food. To me, it’s very convenient for people to eat – kids, adults – everybody can eat fried chicken. It’s easy to serve most people.”

The two new business owners chose the specific location because there’s easy access to the building, as it’s on a corner lot on a major street. “Everybody can see it when they get off the freeway,” Julie said.

The Ung family last owned an authentic Thai restaurant in Canyon Country. They have lived in the Santa Clarita Valley for many years.


“I love it,” she said. “It’s not crowded, it’s nice and clean and people are nice. It’s quiet, less crime than anywhere else. And not crowded. The air is clean too … not a lot of pollution.”

There is only one family-owned Crazy Hot Chicken so far. But if it becomes increasingly popular, the Ung family hopes to expand.

Michael is a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu, “so he came up with a recipe for the batter, how to marinate it, etc.,” Julie said.

They offer side orders from Alfredo style macaroni-and-cheese to garlic mashed potatoes. The menu is also a base for customers to expand upon. “We can make things more fancy,” she said, offering a topping of bacon and eggs as an example. “And we can put any sauce that they like on it.”

Crazy Hot Chicken is located at 27125 Sierra Hwy, suite 100, in Santa Clarita. (661) 360-9003.
